As happy as we are about that milestone, I’m madder than hell that it’s been spent in the NICU. Sorry, folks. It’s late and I’m being honest 🙂
By all accounts, it was an uneventful day. I had a great visit with our surgeon, filled with a balanced dose of candor and humor. And, we bid a sweet farewell to our resident, Eric. He’s off to the East Side Clinic and then to the PICU at Dell. We’re hoping we get to bug him again. He will be entering private pediatric practice at the end of his resident year and we can’t think of a more perfect fit. Eric, you were compassionate, funny, knowledgeable, patient, kind and honest with us. I didn’t even mind your 5:45am calls with our “Luke reports” :-). Thanks for being along on the ride with us. It’s been an honor. Really. Oh, and I did I mention he’s an Aggie, Class of ’03? Howdy, Hullaballo and GIG ‘EM 🙂
We had some really wonderful moments of reflection today. Some “reflective” and some “God, I’m still very angry with you.” Judy, if you’re reading this, please pass along some genuine thanks to your sister for her gift. Scott and I spent some time praying over Luke tonight…powerful doesn’t quite describe it. Then, we were off to the chapel to ask for God’s prayers for our marriage.
If I haven’t said it recently, I’d like to share it with you now. I have a God-fearing man as a husband. I stand in awe of his faith and feel like the luckiest wife in the world to call him Mr. Wonderful. He is all that (circle and a snap) and a bag of chips.
We’ll work on the “uneventful” on Luke’s end. Y’all make it a great weekend.
